It’s pretty fantastic that he opened his speech by giving a nod to the Royals, who have made the postseason for the first time since 1985. Konerko spent 16 of his 18 major league seasons playing for the White Sox.

Konerko will get his number (14) officially retired in a ceremony early next season at U.S. Cellular Field.
